Yeladim Groups

Camp Yeladim has a group for all preschool age children. Each age unit is designed to engage and stimulate your child to maximize fun in their day camp experience.

2 Year Old Campers

Camp Yeladim offers the perfect first summer camp experience for your child to explore new environments and meet new friends in a safe and secure environment. Your two year old camper is surrounded by loving and nurturing counselors who enrich your child with a wide variety of fun and educational experiences.

3 Year Old Campers

Three year old campers are ready to experience new friends and activities as they expand their awareness of the world around them. These campers venture through the J: jumping and running in the gym, playing in the pool,  and learning water safety in group swim lessons in our shallow wading pool. Campers must be 3 years old by June 16, 2014 to enter the pool with their class group.

4 Year Old Campers

Our oldest campers look forward to outdoor activities and excitement throughout the day. Trips to the pool for swimming, to the gym for sports, and even hikes keep our four year old campers on the move! This camp is the perfect introduction to prepare your child to enter Pre-K and Transitional Kindergarten (TK).

What Parents are saying about Camp Yeladim:

Camp Yeladim was a great way for my kids to get acclimated to their new preschool. After the summer they already knew their classmates for fall!

Camp Yeladim was such a welcoming place for my kids to spend the summer. Our preschool is closed during the summer and Camp Yeladim was the perfect place for our kids during these months.

The Camp Yeladim counselors were outstanding! Our daughter is so excited to continue at the preschool in the fall.
